4.0 out of 5 stars good but try open office, 19 Aug 2003
This review is from: Microsoft Office XP Standard for Students and Teachers (CD-ROM)
Is the cup half full or half empty? You can knock Microsoft's stuff if you want to. It is easy to find faults with it but it is generally good and it is the industry standard. The big draw back with the "standard" version is the loss of the Access database. The other thing to remember is that this version is a "student" version - designed to familiarise the young with the Microsoft way - so there are licence restrictions. If you are a freelance worker or a home office business using it for work then you may be in breach of the licence. But rather than spend any money why not first try out the free - it's free because hundreds of programmers gave their time to it - open office suite (similar products to word, excel,powerpoint etc). You don't get a stand alone database with that either although there are database functions in it. If you don't like it - and there are draw backs sometimes - then spend your hard earned cash or your student loan on something like this. At this price it is great value.
